Forum: netlabels Subject: Re: Download counters?

i am equally concerned, and very sad as we just put out a new release and there's no counter, and i like to count, but an artist pointed out to me that maybe we should donate to the archive since many of us have used it as a free resource which has been very fortunate for lots of excellent labels to pop up everywhere, ourselves included. so starting next pay whenever i have a spare bit of extra change i'll donate it. it won't be much, but if a few of us do it it might improve conditions around here - they don't ask for much , they've helped us - and its a great resource that will hopefully be around forever. sorry to be the party pooper, but its food for thought...

Working again now - your $10 obviously did the trick. ;)

just wanted to elaborate on that a bit further and say unlike many other "free" download services (which i won't mention here) you don't feel as if you're being used as revenue for some larger company. archive has been around forever. its layout is basic, which is perfect for startup labels even if you don't have great web skills, many things that may have never seen the light of day have emerged as a result of this. i feel a little bit of guilt, as i've used it for free for a long time, and relied upon it constantly.
